So I was talking about having intense sweet craving with Insanity workout the other day. Surprisingly, I said no to a bar of Nestle Crunch Bar. When husband and son came back from the store hours ago, my son handed me a bar of Nestle Crunch to share with his sister. He had his own bar in his pocket. He was very sweet but I gave it back to him coz I don’t like Crunch bars. I simply don’t like the thin layer of crisped rice inside the chocolate. So even though I have sweet cravings, I have proven that I wouldn’t necessarily eat any sweet treats that’s in front of me. That’s a good thing.
So my daughter enjoyed the bar all to herself. She had a blast holding the whole thing. I on the other hand just settled for a couple of oreo cookies an hour after I said no to the Crunch bar,
Day 17 of 30 Days of Truth and Blessings: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
It would definitely be The Purpose Driven Life: What Am I Here For? by Rick Warren. This book came to me and my husband 4 yrs ago. A time when our marriage and family life were in trouble. Without having to delve onto all the details, let’s just say that my husband and I found our purpose after a tumultuous year. We found our way back home. In our journey back to home, The Purpose Driven Life accompanied us through it.
We have a His and Hers copies of this book. We’ve read it before we went to bed. It was an enlightening experience for both of us which helped tremendously in building our relationship with God, ourselves as husband and wife, as individuals living in this earth, and the best parents we could possibly be to our children.
A lot has changed since that day 4 years ago when I thought everything would come crashing down on me and everything I believed in and stood for. This book has definitely changed not only our views on something, but A LOT of things.
After running errands today, I asked my husband to take pictures of me so I could feature my stylish Fall outfit in my Fashion blog, Style & Flair. Bad idea. He started clicking and kept ordering me to “WORK IT” like some mean and arrogant fashion photographer.
I was laughing so hard the whole time. This shot was the culmination of our impromptu photo shoot. I was not looking for anything on the floor nor was I staring at my boots no matter how much I love this pair. I just totally lost it and started laughing hysterically. Thank God I have long hair that covered my face for this last picture that of course my husband had to take too. I’m pretty sure my face was beet red and my mouth was wide open from laughing.
Lesson learned. I’d set up my tripod next time.
Day 15th prompt from the 30 Days of Truth & Blessings is about Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
I’d go for SOMETHING and it would be our Direct TV package. We’ve gone through life without it years ago and let me just say TV time was boring as hell. Some of my favorite shows are from Networks, but I also watch shows that are only found in cable channels or in our case, the satellite package from Direct TV.
I have to have the Food Network, The Cooking Channel(*new), TLC, Bravo, Travel, AMC, Lifetime, Bio, A&E, ID, Discovery, TMC, the Filipino package (Pinoy TV & TFC), satellite music channels and other ones I can’t think about right now. I’m sure the kids would say the cartoon and Disney channels if I ask what they like to watch. My husband would mention Spike, USA, and other ones I can’t remember.
So yeah, this is a superficial and materialistic answer to the question prompt but that’s my answer .
Blogging prompt for day 12th of 30 Days of Truth & Blessings is Something you never get compliments on.
To be honest, it took me a while to think about this which is why I’m just blogging about it now at 10pm. Coz you know, I’m freaking fabulous so I get complimented on pretty much everything. HAHAHAHA!
After a while, I thought of something I’d never get complimented on. My Singing. Why? Coz you wouldn’t actually hear me sing unless playfully on a Karaoke session which I haven’t done in a long long time. Why wouldn’t I sing? Coz I’m not good.
I mean I could carry a tune, and believe it or not, I used to sing in a choir back in my Elementary and High School days. Still, I know and have accepted that I am not a singer. I’ve discovered that when my husband critiqued my awful rendition of Bring Me To Life by Evanescence probably like 8 years ago. I thought I was rockin’ the song while cleaning my house when we were still living in New York. My husband who heard me shriek while he was outside doing some yard work disagreed. He said I was bad
Some wives would have gone to depression after that but I appreciated my husband for telling me the truth. I’d rather hear it from my him early on before I made a fool of myself thinking I’m all that and a bag of chips in front of other people and it turns out I suck. Right?
So yeah, unless you get me really really drunk with a bottle of Tequila, you probably won’t be able to drag me to sing Karaoke in front of a crowd anytime soon. That would prevent you from NOT giving me any compliments in my singing.
To help me with writing profoundly in this blog for NaBloPoMo, I decided to participate on a few writing prompts from the 30 Days of Truth & Blessings which I stumbled upon on Echo’s blog. I’m probably not going to do all prompts though coz some are too private to share.
Day 9th’s prompt is: Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
My friends from San Diego and New York.
When I got married, I had to leave San Diego California to move to Virginia coz that’s where my husband was stationed. We all tried to keep in touch for a few months but busy lives just took over. And then we move to New York.
I was friends with fellow military wives who were also my neighbors. But then we left the Army and moved to North Carolina. Same thing, we tried to keep in touch for a few months but it was hard to sustain it. Busy lives, kids, work, etc. I don’t think we really made that much effort to keep the communication going anyway.
I miss them so much. They’re the last group of people whom I’ve actually trusted. These days, I don’t really open up to anyone at all. I have like maybe 5 people who knows me pretty well but lo and behold, they’re “online” friends. They know who they are .
I’ll search for my old friends in Facebook someday and will find my courage to say hi. As childish as it sounds, I really don’t know where to start. I find myself being shy all of a sudden. It’s been so long so I really don’t know what to say and I’m not sure if they still remember me.
All I could do is try, right?
This year’s NaBloPoMo lets participants post videos once a week so I figured Sunday would be it for me. I happen to like listening to Top 40 music and love dancing to pop and hip-hop songs. One of the songs I’m digging right now is Usher’s DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love ft. Pitbull so here’s the video. Enjoy!
It’s the 1st day of November, 1st day of November NaBloPoMo, and it’s Monday. For some reason I love it when that happens. Although I don’t know how often it happens in the calendar but I just love it. It feels like the new beginning, no? I figured this day deserves something better than reading up on phentermine reviews. How about a successful Insanity Fit Test and a good breakfast of butter croissant and peach yogurt?
Doesn’t that look delicious? I love Peach yogurt. My husband tried to sell me the banana cream pie flavored yogurt when we went grocery shopping but I adamantly told him that I prefer Peach. So to make his point, he took the banana cream pie yogurt for himself and firmly told me he likes it. So I told him FINE, but I’m getting my Peach . The croissant, ahhh, so buttery goodness. I wanted another one but I’m supposed to be eating moderately so I’ll just save the other one for tomorrow. I love croissants as much as I love Peach yogurt.
I think I’m going to have a good 1st day of November, 1st day of November NaBloPoMo, and 1st day of the week. Try to have a good one yourself as well!
